Guam - The Guam Homeless Coalition began training this morning for this month's homeless Point In Time count. The count is held every January as part of a nationwide effort to count and characterize the homeless community. Last year's count identified over 1300 homeless individuals, 180 of which included families with children.

Volunteers will be dispersing food bags as well as information on available services. Coalition representative Holly Rustick told KUAM News, "We have put together a booklet as well that has the different addresses and phone numbers for these different providers and it has a little blub of what services they actually provide."

For those interested in donating canned goods, you can drop goods to Salvation Army in Tiyan until January 28.
